After a full year of selling a non-compliant Type-C phone, +OnePlus follows up with their OnePlus3 that ALSO doesn’t support USB host in the correct way according to the Type-C spec. The OnePlus 2 shipped with a noncompliant cable, and their “otg” mode was noncompliant such that official C device adapters would not work, and so is the OnePlus 3, apparently.

They simply haven’t learned how to build a phone properly.

Thanks +GTrusted for the scoop.

Folks, avoid OnePlus’s phones if you want a phone that actually works with peripherals in the growing USB Type-C ecosystem like thumbdrives, for goodness sake.

You have to manually go into storage an enable USB OTG first, why it’s not on my default I don’t know but it works just fine.

Edit: Looks like +GTrusted have revised their post.
